I feel deeply honored to have been presented with this award from United Plant Savers. What a wonderful organization doing such important work.
From the United Plant Savers Journal of Medicinal Plant Conservation, Spring 2013 Edition:
"United Plant Savers is happy to announce that Jeanine Davis is the 2013 Medicinal Plant Conservation Award Recipient. Jeanine is a whiz at getting small farmers into specialty crops including medicinal plants. Her influence over the last two decades in North Carolina is legendary; just take a look at her amazing website: www.ncherb.org for resources for small organic farmers and how to grow guides for black cohosh (Actaea racemosa), bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis), Echinacea (Echinacea spp.), false unicorn (Chamaelirium luteum), goldenseal (Hydrastis Canadensis), and more to come. Jeanine is a big supporter of UpS, has taught at Planting the Future Events and recently helped coordinate the Ginseng Expo this past December."
